Prepare Yourself And Your Family For The Future
Many people put off making a will or other estate planning documents, either because they think it will be too complicated, or because they just don’t want to think about the subject. In fact, estate planning does not have to be complicated, and everyone should think about it.
Planning your estate doesn’t have to be a gloomy endeavor and it doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be a wonderful way to provide for your loved ones while sparing them some serious headaches. In fact, it can be about protecting yourself, as well.
My law firm, the Law Office of Robert G. Radebach, in Halifax, Pennsylvania, helps people prepare for difficult transitions, protect their property and leave legacies for their loved ones and favorite charities.
As an estate planning attorney, I help people draft estate planning documents that will stand up to legal scrutiny and carry out your wishes many years into the future. I have experience with such issues as:
- Living trusts
- Living wills
- Powers of attorney
- Advance health care directives
- Real estate law
I have been an attorney for more than four decades and have been representing clients in Halifax for many years. This is a small community, where many of us have known each other all our lives. When you are my client, I work with you to come up with a plan that is right for you, your family and your community.
Make Important Decisions In Advance
Estate planning is a way to make important decisions in advance, so that you and the people you love will know how to handle changes when they come.
When you create a will, you are providing instructions on how to distribute your property after you have passed away. This spares your loved ones having to make difficult decisions and helps them to avoid a lot of arguing with each other.
Estate planning can make a big difference during your lifetime, as well. It can be essential for your loved ones if or when illness or injury render you unable to make important decisions.
A document known as a power of attorney lets you appoint a relative or trusted friend to make decisions about your finances and other important matters if you have become unable to make them yourself. A health care directive allows you to make important decisions about your medical care in advance, so that you spare your loved ones the anguish of having to make those decisions themselves.
These are legal documents, and they have to stand up to legal scrutiny. You need a skilled lawyer to help you draft them.
